    We used to use a wounded rabbit call....don't shoot the scout....let the whole flock come in.....

    Get yourself a Johnny Stewart crow in distress, feeding call they work great. This can be obtained in either CD or cassette tape and you can use a boom box but keep the volume low if its too loud it won't be as effective. Plastic hollow crow decoys, great horned owl decoy. Then make yourself invisible until they come in over you but don't shoot the first one in that will be the scout.
    good luck

    Here in Mchigan i have found a little trick that works great tha ti haven't seen others use to much. Instead of using decoys I use a large spot of red on top of the snow, spray paint, ketcup, a red rag may even work as i have not tried, but a large red patch to look like a blood stain from the air, then use either a mouth or electric caller. it works great around here, carefull using spray paint as it not the most eveviormentlay freindly.

    dont move and wait till they all come in. If they see any movement your done. Also use old wire hangers and form them to look like a bird outline, then wrap them in a black garbage bags and electrical tape. better to carry then those big plastic decoys.

    McDonald's French fries seems to attract them too... Mind you they attract Sea gulls too...

    Skeet is a sport where you are better to hit half of each bird then completely blast one and miss the other completely.

    The choice is yours, place your faith in the court system and 12 of your peers, or carried away by 6 friends.

    THAT is the way to do it. Electronic calling rocks.
